This guide is relevant to officials of non-corporate Commonwealth entities (NCEs) and corporate Commonwealth entities (CCEs) with responsibility for assisting accountable authorities in preparing corporate plans.
This guide discusses concepts for developing performance measures, and the specific requirements of section 16EA of the PGPA Rule:
- The accountable authority of a Commonwealth entity is required to measure and assess the performance of the entity in achieving its purposes.
- The purposes of a Commonwealth entity includes the objectives, functions or role of the entity.
- The achievement of an entity’s purposes are pursued through undertaking activities. The accountable authority is required to report the key activities the entity will undertake in order to achieve its purposes in the entity’s corporate plan.
- The accountable authority is also required to detail in the corporate plan how the entity’s performance in achieving its purposes will be measured and assessed.
This guide does not:
- provide definitive technical advice on how to design performance measures
- prescribe a generic set of standard performance measures to be reported by Commonwealth entities.
